    And if you can recognize that you're wrong about not wearing the seat belt, why do you still not wear it? It's idiotic.
    If idiots want to be idiots, why should the rest of us care. Let Darwin have them and the species will be improved.

    Re: Do you believe in seat belt laws for consenting adults?

    Personally, I resented seat belt laws when they were first initiated. In retrospect, I was wrong. It is undeniable that seat belts save a lot of lives and are truly not too large of an inconvenience. The law starts with everyone, so when the kiddies grow up, they take it for granted and wonder why anyone would object. It is a wonderful example to set for the children and that is our duty as parents/responsible adults.

    I don't need the law to know to wear mine, but I am opposed to others being force to; Let those Darwin Award winners make the gene pool less stupid, stop protecting idiots, please.

    Sure the same argument could be made for many other things, I mean if nothing else we are all linked through taxes. However with seat belts there's no downside whatsoever to wearing one, outside of a purely ideological argument there's no loss of freedom for anyone, people are still able to do things exactly as before, there's no impact on your daily life whatsoever.

    The human body becomes a projectile when it has been traveling at 30-60 mph in a car and suddenly that car is no longer traveling that speed. The body keeps going. A seat belt stops that motion. Without the seatbelt, the body can strike others within the car, causing damage to them or be ejected from the car, causing harm or problems to others traveling the road.
    Where is the intent to invade the person or property of another?

    That you wouldn't have gotten if you had your seat belt on. But yes I take it back, if you're dumb enough as a person to drive a vehicle without a seat belt, and even more stupid of a person to drive a vehicle without a seat belt when you know you may get pulled over for it then it may have an impact on your daily life.

    But you know that kind of applies to everything doesn't? I mean stupidity will have an impact on your daily life in everything, regardless of how simple, easy, or smart it is to do if you really try hard enough to be that much of a damn moron.

    a) Yes. They are nessisary to protect the public for their own good.
    b) No. I'm a consenting adult and shouldn't have to wear one if I don't want to.

    As long as emergency services are going to be paid out of the common pool and funded by the taxpayer I think it's not the worst imposition on someone's liberties. I'm willing to restrict their rights for the rest of our sake.
